For Anandita-

A Mother’s Pain

The pain, the ache,
The grief unspoken
Only visible in
Her brimming eyes...

Tears unshed,
Tears withheld,
Speaks of a mother’s pain…

The endless wait
with bated breath,
Missed heartbeats
Seems unreal yet….so real...

A desire to share,
Yet not speak
A desire to know
Yet not listen….

Her stoicity, her strength
Is in her core,
The pain is borne
Her tears now flow.
